Kolkata: Displaying alacrity over the return of the 400 acre land to the Singur farmers, the recently appointed Industries Minister of West Bengal, Partha Chatterjee on Monday instructed the State Industrial Development Corporation authorities to present the documents of the deal with Tata Motors for land allotment in Singur.

Chatterjee has also sought the status report of the other Industrial units in the IT sector and has asked the officials to prepare a report on the closed factories. The Industry Minister has ordered the authorities to present the file on Singur before him by Tuesday.

“As soon as I get the file of the land allotment to Tata Motors in Singur, I will forward it to the CM and after reviewing all the terms and conditions and policies, the required steps will be initiated in this regard,” Chatterjee said.

If required, amendments will also be made in the law, he added.

“I have also asked the status report of the IT sector units so that work can be initiated on that front. To promote IT sector we will create suitable circumstances and provide them the required security,” the Industry minister said.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in her first cabinet meeting had announced that 400 acre land at Singur would be returned to farmers who were not satisfied with the land acquisition process.
